Dukes Mound closure
Dukes Mound on Brighton seafront is to be closed on Monday 21 November for around three months for essential structural repairs to the high retaining wall which supports the A259 seafront road above. It will reopen on 3 February 2017.
In consultation with traders, the downhill side of Dukes Mound will reopen at weekends (Friday evening until Monday morning). The road will also be opened over the Christmas period – between Tuesday 20 December and 4 January.
The closure has been planned to avoid conflicting with any events on Madeira Drive.
Works form part of a £100m council programme of improvements.
Dukes Mound is named after the 6th Duke of Devonshire who owned Fife House, 1 Lewes Crescent, situated immediately north of this site.
